The Edo State government has petitioned the Inspector General of Police Adamu Mohammed, calling on him to arrest the former Governor of the state and the Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Adam Oshiomhole for disturbing the peace in the state.
The request for Oshiomhole’s arrest was contained in a petition submitted to the Inspector-General of Police and Director-General of the Department of State Services by the Edo State deputy governor, Philip Shuaibu.
The petition claimed that the APC National Chairman had consistently breached the peace of Edo State by ignoring lawful orders of constituted authorities.
Governor Obaseki had in a viral video recently vowed to deal with Oshiomhole if he keeps disrupting activities of Edo APC.
The former labour leader was instrumental to the emergence of Obaseki but fell out with the governor shortly before he declared his re-election bid.
